Well if you have to appeal all the way to the US supreme court, I think the
filing fee is $2000 to $5000 dollar for the US Supreme Court, that
does not include the fee to hire the expert lawyer to draft it $40.000 Transcripts are I would guess, a
$1000 dollars legal fees $2000.Then if it goes to trial again $3000.
: I need to decide whether or not to appeal the decision. I was pro se. There are errors in law and errors in fact according to the pro se attorney. (I'm reluctant to go into details: the court was buzzing re this message board re Richard/Dangerfield). I will be contacting lawyers, all strangers to me, this week and was hoping some of you could give me a ballpark estimate about the costs and time involved to compare with what thay say.
: For now: how much to expect just to file the appeal?: court cost, transcript cost: 10 hours, attorney to prepare the papers, (alternate) attorney to coach and review the papers.
: Just as important: I want to deposit the rent/judgement into the court of appeals and stay the possesion: is this the normal thing?
: Thank you for your time.
: ps: any other suggestions welcomed!
